How ironic! Starting your thread with "to think that".

You do realise that this is AIBU?
As in..
Am I being unreasonable to think pasta pesto isn't a universal...

I still think it should be "AIBU in thinking that..."

confused YABU.... to think that we need a new way to start threads.

Only threads in AIBU start like this, because they follow on from the "Am I being unreasonable..." bit.

I only mentioned this because everything in my trending started 'to think that'.......
I was trying to be funny....

I got ya desolate!

Thank goodness Alice. I was starting to think that everyone had had a sense of humour bypass.
Perhaps I should have put 'lighthearted' in the thread title.

Ah ok. smile

Well if you don't like the way other people start their threads maybe you should start your own!

Err, she just did.

AliceInUnderpants Mon 13-Feb-17 21:22:23

I got it too. Must be an Alice thing wink

OnHold grin

If you want a lighthearted observation to be taken in the spirit in which it was intended, ask an Alice.

Who the fuck is Alice???

DesolateWaist Mon 13-Feb-17 21:50:32

A town called I think.

EggysMom Mon 13-Feb-17 21:52:30

Monger I agree! It's AIBU in thinking that ... or even W it BU to think that ...

EccentricPickle Mon 13-Feb-17 21:52:40

I got you too, OP. Maybe I should name change to Alice. grin

ALemonyPea Mon 13-Feb-17 21:55:08

Good grief op, you should have put lighthearted in your thread title, and explained what you meant.

I got it btw, surprised others didn't. Gone are the days of tongue in cheek threads <sigh>

BertieBotts Mon 13-Feb-17 21:55:26

AIBU to think ... annoys me too because of course you aren't being unreasonable to think whatever the fuck you want confused

At least it's not the profoundly irritating and illogical "AIBU That my MIL said I was a fat cow?"

At least "AIBU to think that my MIL is an evil witch because she said I was a fat cow" has some basic grammatical integrity - although I grant you it lacks elegance.

I like that there was no lighthearted disclaimer.

I remember days when lighthearted was rarely used and MN was all fields etc etc

DesolateWaist Mon 13-Feb-17 22:29:17

Anyway, I thought that Alice lived nextdoor.

PavlovianLunge Mon 13-Feb-17 22:40:26

I don't know about next door, but Alice doesn't live here anymore.

(I also got it, but I'm not an Alice.)
